    Need Dining Suggestion- Poll

    In looking at my reservations for December/January, I discovered that I booked Restaurant Marrakesh two nights in a row. While I love the food, I do not think my son will want to eat there twice. So please answer the poll and give your reasons why I should eat there.

    My son is 12 but a very adventureous eater. He loves to try new things so it does open up some possibilities.

    Other meals will be eaten at various restaurants so please do not suggest one not on the list. We may be eating there or in looking at the menus, taken it off the list. Lots of meals will be eaten but here are some possibilities to choose from. Thanks for your help!


    MULTIPLE CHOICES CAN BE LISTED. Just be sure and tell me why so I can make an informed decision.

    I didn't see a poll, or should I just make a suggestion? By the way, my son loved the belly dancers, and he ate the chicken on kababs and loved the deserts and fresh bread, if that helps....

    Well since you are already eating at a sit-down restaurant in Epcot, I decided not to pick something there. I went with Tony's. Yes, there is better italian food at epcot. However, the lady and the tramp theme, coupled with the location at the entrance of the MK and some good kid-friendly choices made me go with that. My backup would be Planet hollywood, my kids love looking around down there....

    Thanks! I couldn't decide and son is off at camp. So I hope to get some good answers! I like the idea of Planet Hollywood since we have never been there.

    I really like Yak and Yeti, the food and the theming are both very good. I think Nine Dragons is closed for refurb. The only one on the list I don't like (of the ones I've tried) is Tony's, but I am just a fussy Italian. I have heard good things about the Wave and the Turf Club. I like Kona for breakfast (have never been there for dinner) and Fultons was good last time I was there a couple years ago. If your son is into the movies then try Planet Hollywood, the food is ok, it just depends on what you get. They're good with the basics.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    I'd say if he's very adventurous and likes trying new things... take him to the restaurants at Epcot in the WS. Let him try some food from other cultures!

    I like Fulton's:
    The environment at DTD is so festive, but less hurried then the parks tend to be, so a sit down meal feels like an event there.

    The food is amazing, hard to beat well prepared seafood in a fabulous environment.

    Bonus: dessert at Ghiradelli (spelling?) MMMMMM,

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.

    I voted for Yak and Yeti, you have to go at least once, it was really good and I liked the theming of the restaurant. (Ride Everest before eating, just in case).

    I think Nine Dragons reopens end of November but I am not exactly sure. Okay, just checked, scheduled to reopen November 30. I'm for sure going to check it out in December! Ker, you like Chinese?

    I voted Planet Hollywood, we ate there and although i found it very noisy the boys loved all the film stuff around them. If i could eat anywhere in DTD, Rainforest Cafe would be first choice with Planet Hollywood a very close second.

    I picked Fulton Crab House, but isn't it closing for a refurb? I think the Brown Derby is excellent too, but it was not on the list.

    The tuna at the Brown Derby is really, really good according to the DW. I don't eat many things that live in the sea. Would not want to eat one of Nemo's friends.

    Brown Derby is already booked. I went to Fulton's WWWWAAAAAAYYYYY back when it was Empress Lilly. My son loves seafood. Good idea.

    I thought about Rainforest Cafe but there are several in the Dallas area that we could go to so it isn't necessarily a special treat for going to Disney. I have never been to Planet Hollywood and just thought my son might like the atmosphere.

    He loves Le Cellier and we will be trying Biertgarten and Teppado Edo this trip plus Morocco. I understand why some of you suggest going to another park for meals. And I am thinking of adding Yak and Yeti to my other set of reservations (confusing but I know what I am am doing)

    Unfortunately, I have eaten at very few of these restaurants. I love Fulton's, never miss it when I am there. I can definitely eat everyone under the table when it comes to crab legs. That being said, I have also tried Cap'n Jacks. It was dreadful. Very over priced and the selections were not very good for the price. The 12 year old we had in our party was not happy, but none of us were.
    I do love the theming of Tony's, but the food left something to be desired. I too am a fussy Italian, and it seemed all the items had the same flavor, and I enjoy pesto.
    I wish I could be of much help!
    But, by the time I get back from December, it looks like Caroline will have taken me to a few more on your list!
